Decoding Village Agendas – October 25,, 2016
Work Session of the Village Board
7: 30 p.m.
(Open to Public and Televised)
NOTE: This meeting is on a Tuesday.
- Discussion of creating a Village Towing and Booting Law that would enable the Village to tow or boot vehicles which are found to have three or more outstanding parking violations. The Village currently has about $19,510 in outstanding fines from about 30 vehicles. Persistent violators seem to be able to avoid payment through transfers of registration and ownership, out of state registration, and other means. This law would allow such vehicles to be booted or towed to a Village parking lot at the discretion of the Police Chief, In addition to the fines, there would be an additional $100 administrative fee imposed.
- Discussion of amendments to the zoning code regarding walls, retaining walls, fences and accessory uses. The Zoning Board has requested that the code regarding fences and walls be clarified to help them with decisions regarding variances for such. This is been an ongoing discussion for several years with input from the ZBA, the Visual environment Board and the Board of Trustees. The Village Attorney has produced a draft of a proposed amendment based on these discussions. Regarding walls and fences, the issues include how height is measured and where they can be located on a property.
